Are malls open?
Bruh there were like 1000 people in there. It's a fairly large mall but still...

Fucking hell.
We clearly need more guns in the hands of the teenage girls that frequent malls so they can stop the bad guy with a gun.

Some dude put a can of cat food out for one of our building's "communal cats" (basically roams around but sleeps/is fostered by one of the tenants.

Came home from a late drive and saw an opossum eating from it. I did my best to move slowly around and as I am opening the apartment door I hear a huge thud. The opossum tried to hide/run from me and it basically went under the first step/stair going to the next floor, causing it to fall one story into the lower level below (outdoor apartment). I quickly ran to the staircase to see if it was okay, and it looked pretty dazed but it started walking again. Hid by one of the lower level apartment doors and then came out about 30 seconds later. I decided instead of it trying to climb up and potentially falling again which would certainly kill it if done a second time, I would bring the can of food downstairs so it can finish its meal.

About 2-3 minutes later after I explained to :tits: what happened it was gone, presumably ran off into the lower level picnic/ravine area. Feels :sad: because I did not want it to run/hide from me and I feel like if it dies due to the injuries it's partly my fault, even though I was basically hugging the wall and 15-20 ft away from it at all times.

If It does not die because of the fall, I would have to say it's probably one of the most random :wtf: moments that have happened to me in a long while.
Oh he's fine

That's awesome, great to hear it. Did they apprehend the gunman/gunwoman? People bringing heat to a mall blows my mind, maybe I've been assimilated to think not having protection is :thisisfine: but I'm still not dead yet so :iono:

My bro has a few guns, maybe if I go to a range and snap a few rounds off I might start to love it but ignorance is bliss.

I'm up at the cottage to isolate with my older kid, the little guy caught something at school presumably but is doing better, went from flu like symptoms to just stuffy... wife caught it as well and she's back to normal after only a day. I'm strategizing what to do with us next, seems like neither of us are showing signs of getting sick so we either wait here longer or go to my mom's house and I get the older one to school tomorrow. Stupid covid tests taking four days is no bueno.

Staying up here for a few days would be pretty chill doe. What to do...?

I carry for work and my opinion is guns in the hands of the general public in a situation like this are absolutely no protection. You won't win that fight and you'll probably hurt or kill someone else. Most people don't shoot enough to be remotely good enough to actually defend themselves. Add in adrenaline and fear...

We are on semi lockdown for the same thing here. Kids have those symptoms and I feel really really run gotten. Waiting on test results... I say stay up there!

Brutal, I guess the masks really aren't enough protection at toddler/kindergarden levels because these tots need to take them off a lot and just generally play within proximity. I was kind of hoping that all the separation would kick start September with little to no outbreaks.

I'm thinking of staying here too. It's not really a big deal and I'll be much happier with myself if this ends up being COVID.

I wanted to ask you how your sister and husband are doing? Any progress since you last announced that the virus was lingering in them with little to no improvement.

Isolate yourself from others for 14 days and get tests for the whole nuclear family. The guidelines are pretty clear here

Animals are impressively resilient. I've watched squirrels fall 40' from a tree and just get up and ran away.

Still, not a great idea to be feeding wildlife around an apt IMO. Opossums are chill, but rats suck.
I agree. Like I mentioned it was originally for the cat and I ran into the opossum eating from it. After that fall I just wanted it to enjoy some more food I guess.

Our complex is weird in that it's situation within a huge ravine. Lots of terrain change and trees. Lots of small wildlife (usually they don't go near people).

Hoping so. I watched from my floor and he was sort of figuring out :wtf: just happened after the fall. He was a bit dazed and then he just walked along. Nature be crazy

Not even that, but if cops show up to neutralize the threat and they see a good guy with a gun, they don't know whether that is a good guy with a gun and they just see a guy with a gun.

Especially with active shooter scenarios where (Bender and I were talking about this last night off-line) you often have multiple agencies responding to the scene. One agency failing to communicate something complicates that even further. Again, even in a public scenario if you are carrying you should only react if your own life is in danger. Otherwise it's just mass panic finger pointing and then someone might mistake you for the threat you were trying to defend from.

I think if the two people get better after a few days and tests come back negative for both sick people we should be in the clear or at least know whatever the little guy caught isn't VID. We are encouraged to test if we develop symptoms.

Either where, I agree that staying isolated is the right move till we get tests back for the sicklings.

Exactly right. Avoid all people right now so that you don’t spread it in case some of you have it.

You should test everyone in the nuclear fam right now. Otherwise you’ll be waiting 4 days in case others test positive

Thanks for asking! They are "over it" but my bro in law is still suffering. His ability to exercise and stuff is still severely curtailed and the fatigue is still there. All improving though.

Learned that snorkeling is not for me this weekend. I’m a relatively strong swimmer, but breathing “underwater” freaks me the fuck out and not being able to breathe through my nose made me feel super claustrophobic. Was cool having the goggles on and seeing how clear the water was out there, but I’d 100% rather have normal goggles and just pull my head up to breathe like I normally would when swimming. I went back out at one point and tried to do that without the snorkel attached, but forgot that those masks still cover your nose and you’re forced to breathe through your mouth. :nope:
:sawce:
